This place is amazing! The trendy atmosphere, friendly employees, and the delicious organic choices are just a few of the reasons why I will go here again. Meeting my husband here for a lunch date was perfect, but I won't be bringing my large family here. Not budget friendly, but definitely worth a date outing some time in the near... More

Greenleaf chefs use fresh seasonal produce -- the salads are so delicious! I've tried several of the daily specials and they never disappoint.

Greenleaf Chopshop has been crowded since the day it opened; it's an 'organic' style restaurant where you order at the counter, and then they deliver your meal to your table. There are many vegetarian and organic options. The food is okay; the restaurant is usually pretty noisy, and the service is soso. The best thing I've ever had there was... More

I have never been disappointed by a meal here BUT I am not sure it's worth the price these days. There are so many quality healthy options opening up that I'm finding it harder to pay 20+ dollars for a salad because I want chicken on it. And lately the chicken has been rubbery multiple times. Overall I still love... More

If you're itching for something healthy (or are forced into it), Greenleaf Chopshop has it all!

I ordered the almond crusted chicken with sweet potato fries... More

Out of a whim we decided to eat here for lunch,we were in the mood for salads and boy did they deliver. I ordered the chicken wang salad, not misspelled either. The produce was exceptionally fresh, the dressing was creamy and not over bearing and the sauce had kick but was not overwhelmingly spicy. My husband had the Hollywood Bowl... More

I liked that they have locally sourced, sustainable, and organic ingredients. Great menu, from seasonal specials to sandwiches and salads...everything sounded yummy and interesting. My lemongrass chicken salad was good...chock full of all kinds of ingredients (as my husband calls it, a busy salad) that blended well together. Unfortunately, my friend's winter butternut squash and goat cheese salad was mostly... More
